ROCK THE CAPE  




My mission with this book, A Girl With A Cape™, is to not only send a good message to anyone who reads it, but to start a Movement, to Rock the CAPE

Creating Action with Positive Encouragement to help Create A Positive Environment

What  is Rock the CAPE?

When we teach people to use kindness when they speak, and when we encourage kids by focusing on the positive things they do and say, we raise a generation of confident kids that feel good about themselves, and kids then learn to treat people the exact same way.  When this happens, it helps eliminate bullies.  Essentially, with encouragement, we are creating action in people to create a positive environment.

How can you take part in this Movement?

It's SIMPLE.

When someone Rocks the Cape, that means they are taking responsibility and Creating A Positive Environment around them. They are "getting their KINDNESS on" and leaving a trail of good deeds; they are helping others; they are being respectful; they are showing kindness and compassion. Here are some ideas to get you started:

•hold the door
•look people in the eye and say good morning
•look people in the eye and greet them anytime of day, and hey add a smile•it instantly improves your face value

Other Ideas

  • Teach kids that they are leaders and mentors.  That will have a tremendous impact on their future. Have them take the Rock the CAPE pledge, stating that they will do things to create a positive environment, including daily acts of kindness, setting an example for those around them, both younger and older.
  • Print up a stack of Kindness Cards to leave a trail of kindnesses everywhere you go; Print up our CAPE Cards and send to someone who needs one. The more people we have doing small individual acts of kindness and encouragement, the more those things add up and start to “snowball.”  It’s a simple idea that we all need to spread.

  • Invite Amy out to speak with your group and Rock the CAPE at an event soon.
